This committee was set up thanks to the initiative of María who lives in 16km Acaray, in Minga Guazú. María contacted her neighbors and friends and set up the committee in her area. The committee is called 'San Luis' and it is currently in its fourth loan cycle with 14 members. The group is well known in the neighborhood for the unity, support and responsibility of its members.

María's business is selling food in a café that she owns. She provides all kinds of meals and drinks to her customers. Her workplace isn't very big but it has a very good reputation as regards its quality and service.

María is requesting this loan to acquire a larger quantity of drinks and supplies for making food. In this way, she hopes to increase her income and improve her quality of life.

About Fundación Paraguaya

Fundación Paraguaya is a financially self-sustaining social enterprise that promotes entrepreneurship in urban and rural areas through microfinance, education programs, and more. Its focus on agriculture has helped many farmers boost their crop yields. And a number of other borrowers have taken out loans to start and grow social businesses that have helped deliver eyeglasses, medicines and other helpful services in their local communities.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
